Default Can I Claim A New Camper And Expenses?

We financed a camper in 2016. Can I claim it as business expense? We have it on a seasonal site at a campground. So it is there all year long. In spring, summer and fall I bring the kids there a couple times a week and spend the day. Can I claim the camper cost and/or expenses related to the camper such as our electric bill? I read something about a camper qualifying as a second home?

You can't treat the camper as a second home. You could claim a portion of the cost of the camper and electric bills based on a business use percentage. If children use it 30 days a year, then the business use percentage would be 30/365 = 8.2%.
